G & G H and New Shower

 little helper Andrew, into trouble.

My parents came to visit us last week.  I talked my dad into bringing his tools. I put him to work.  The shower in our bedroom has been falling apart for a long time, the door no longer shut, and the coriane was pulling away from the wall on one of the sides.  My dad is talented when it comes to home repair projects, so I knew he could handle this one.  The shower turned out fantastic!! I love it! thanks dad.

Photo Art

These photos are from  I love this website. (maybe someday I will join it)  The photographers are so amazing. I love how they combine photography with art, so many of the photos almost look like paintings. I tried to do something similar, you can ck it out on my photo blog.


Last Saturday I ran my first ever 10K (6 miles) race.  It was a great experience and I'm glad my friend JoEllen talked me into it.  I'm not what you would call a runner, in fact I have a hard time getting myself motivated in the running department.  It has been therapeutic though, I can see why people like it.  While running the race I even had some great insightful moments (almost spiritual).  My fantastic friend Melinda came out to support me and watch my boys while I ran, it was nice to have a cheerleader.  I finished 314th out of 615 people, I ran 10 min. miles and finished the race in 1 hr and 3 minutes. 
I'm not sure if I'm done racing, guess it depends on my knees.  1/2 marathon?
Really I'm just glad it wasn't a repeat of my 5k from high school.
